GovTravels is the only event where decision makers from government and industry gather to meet, learn and collaborate on common travel issues. Our 2021 theme is “Respond, Adapt, Innovate—the Changing World of Government Travel.

The National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA) and the Defense Travel Management Office (DTMO) co-sponsor the 2021 NDTA-DTMO Annual GovTravels Symposium (Virtual), scheduled for February 23-25, 2021, hosted on our virtual platform and available for your world-wide participation.

The symposium brings together U.S. government and industry passenger travel experts to examine and discuss a wide range of topics focused on commercial travel issues associated with the U.S. Government and Department of Defense’s multi-billion-dollar travel enterprise. GovTravels focuses on government-wide travel programs and travel policy, providing professional development and networking opportunities for all participants.

NDTA, its Government Passenger Travel Advisory Council (GPTAC), and government leaders from DTMO and the U.S. General Services Administration gather their stakeholders from across the Department of Defense, other U.S. Government Agencies, the passenger travel industry, and academia to find creative and innovative ways to improve travel readiness, solve challenges, and improve the U.S. Government’s ability and capability to provide the travel services needed to respond and operate as needed regardless of the contested environment.

If you work in passenger travel and related services for the federal government, a state government, or the private sector, GovTravels is for you. We are creating an exciting program for this year’s event with input from DTMO, the General Services Administration, and private sector stakeholders and we hope you will join us.

NDTA is also hosting a virtual exposition, where organizations can highlight their travel solutions and offerings, and attendees can benefit from the sharing of information. For more information, please visit our GovTravels sponsorship/expo page.
